- The Artist
“The Birth of Venus,” a mythological allegory and representation of spring by Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli (1444 – 1510), is one of the most recognizable images in the history of art. The lyrical painting of an ethereally delicate being is brought vividly to life through Botticelli’s mastery of supple forms, lines and exquisitely opalescent colors. A protégé of the Medici family Botticelli, virtually unknown centuries after his death, is also known for his glorious Sistine Chapel frescoes.
Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1444 – 1510) is regarded as epitomizing the spirit of the Italian Renaissance. Renowned as one of the greatest colorists in Florence, Botticelli became a favorite member of inner circle of the Medicis. Painting extraordinary wall frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and several monumental mythological allegories often upholding the triumph of love and reason over base instinct. Little known for centuries after his death, his work was rediscovered in the late 19th century by a group of English Pre-Raphaelites.
